Re: message panel keeps flashing F10 error

Code F-10 indicates a temperature runaway. There are two possible problems. 1) The oven temp sensor has failed. This can be checked using a standard multimeter. The sensor is located behind the rear access panel of your oven. The sensor should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature. 2) The oven control board needs to be replaced. There are no FRU's (field replaceable units) on the control board. Check the sensor first. Even a new control board is cheaper than a new oven.

You have a shorted relay in the control board.

Electrolux oven (model#EW30IS6CJSB, serial#NF21223301) top element won't turn off.

It would not be element bc it only works when supplied voltage. And obviously it works when supplied voltage. Whatever is sending voltage to the top element that shouldn't be is the issue. Such as control board

Why does the f10 code keep appearing on self cleaning fridgidaire oven? When using oven it starts heating out of control. Tends to happen when oven is being used for longer periods of time.

The thermostat is defective. It is a temperature sensor operated switch. It turns the heating element on and off to regulate the proper temperature in the oven at all times.

I have a Maytag Electric Range model MER5755QAW. It was obvious that the heating element was bad, you could see the area where it had blown out. I have replaced the heating element, and the oven will...

Just went thru this with my GE/Hotpoint oven....the oven temp sensor removed from oven should measure about 2K ohms and vary when put in ice water and hot water...if it does then problem is control panel circuit board.My oven's board was listed at $300+ so I bought new range ($500+).

F10 code on a Kenmore self-clean range model #970-6061

Your Kenmore oven has a built-in fault detector. When the oven detects an issue, the display screen on the control panel will flash a fault code. The F10 fault code on your Kenmore oven indicates that the thermal protector on your oven's control unit, or microcontroller (MCU), has overheated. If the MCU overheats, the computer stops all motor functions. Several items on your oven could cause the thermal protector to overheat. Therefore, you must troubleshoot the F10 code to determine why it appeared on your display panel. Instructions 1 Inspect the area around and behind the oven to ensure you did not place the oven next to a source of heat, such as a register vent or other appliance that becomes very hot. If this is the case, you must remove the oven from the heat source to prevent the issue from occurring again. 2 Inspect the oven to ensure all vents on the oven are open and unblocked. This includes heat vents that vent to the outside of the home. Remove any clogs from the oven's venting and check to see if the code reappears. 3 Inspect all of the wiring harnesses that connect to the MCU. Remove the back cover from the control panel with a screwdriver. Look for disconnected harnesses or any harnesses with black residue on them. This indicates an issue with the MCU. Remove the bolts that secure the MCU to the control panel housing and then replace the MCU with a new one. Reconnect all of the harnesses and retest.

F2 message flashing - Is heating element no good?

No. Heating element will not give a F code. F-2 usually is problem with the Oven sensor which is the probe coming into the oven toward the back inside of oven. Replace the oven sensor and you should be fine. Thanks, Rick
